Orwell Road has been added to the Michelin Guide

The Rathgar/Terenure restaurant has only been open since April and has received one of the highest honours in food.

Orwell Road was the only Irish entry today after Michelin Guide announced four new entries into the Guide for the UK and Ireland. The other three are scattered across Britain.

While the inclusion is sudden, it’s not surprising. Michelin recommendations have punctuated Chef Dan Hannigan’s career for many years. He has a passion for provenance. He is using suppliers, which include Sustainable Seafood Ireland and Glenmar seafood, JJ Young, McLoughlin’s and Andarl meat.

The Guide described the restaurant as a “buzzy” place that “showcases ingredients sourced from local producers in its concise selection of modern, skilfully cooked dishes.”

Orwell Road joins the likes of Locks, Circa, and Host as highly recommended restaurants in Dublin.

What is the Michelin Guide?

People love a guide. From Spirit Guides to Dublin’s Ultimate Food Guide, there is a guide for every part of life. The lads behind Michelin Tires knew this. Their creation of the Michelin Star surreptitiously coincided with the invention of the automobile. The things tires go on. Michelin wanted to create demand for automobiles and the tires they manufactured. Unfortunately, there were only a few hundred cars in all of France. So they gave away the Guide for free to create demand for vehicles. 

The Michelin Guide expanded rapidly and became available throughout Europe and Northern Africa within ten years. The Michelin Guide rating system that still guides selections today was introduced in France in 1926 as a single star. The Guide introduced the second and third stars in 1933. Since then, it has been the go-to Guide for dining enthusiasts globally.
